Rebels to Invade Hays Labor Day Weekend

 The United Rebel Sprint Series will make one last visit this year to the RPM Speedway in Hays Kansas this Saturday Aug 30th. This will be the fourth visit this year for the Rebels at the 3/8 mile semi-banked oval.  

The previous three visits have produced three different winners as Steven Richardson scored his only victory of this season on June 14th, Luke Cranston drove to victory on the qualifying night of the Wheatshocker Nationals and Jake Bubak took top honors in the finale collecting $2000 for the win.  

With only 3 races remaining for the Kansas regional championship, Colorado’s Jake Bubak leads Steven Richardson with Zach Blurton a close 3rd, Luke Cranston 4th and rookie Jed Werner rounding out the top five.  

The rookie battle for the Kansas region is a tight one with Werner and Jeremy Huish within ten points of each other. This race will also give Werner the needed amount of races to make their points battle a tight one for the National Rookie of the Year points battle also. 

After a strong performance from both Werner and Huish last weekend at the High Plains Nationals in Colorado they are both looking to be contenders for their first URSS feature win. Huish led all but the last 4 laps as Bubak took the win with Werner relegating him to third on the last lap. This will be a very important race for both rookies.  

Several Colorado cars are also planning on making the trek to Kansas this weekend to meet up with the Kansas regulars. 

Races start at 7pm on Saturday night. The race will also be broadcast live on for those who can’t attend.

Bubak Claims High Plains 305 Natls. 

Jake Bubak once again proved that he’s the man to beat in the United Rebel Sprint Series as he tops a stellar field of 26 cars during the High Plains 305 Nationals at El Paso County Speedway in Calhan, Colorado on Saturday night. 

With heavy rains the night before, the track would be tough to tame as rookie Jeremy Huish and Mike Hathaway brought the field to the green with Huish jumping into the lead followed by Hathaway, rookie Jed Werner, Zach Blurton and Nate Berry rounding out the top 5 after the first lap. 

Huish would continue to lead while the  battles in the back got hot and heavy until Colorado’s Mike Taylor and Nebraska’s Darren Berry got tangled up on the front straightaway with both flipping on lap 7, bringing  out the first of three red flags of the night.  Both drivers were unhurt, but their night of racing would be cut short. 

On the restart, Huish would continue to lead but it was the high flying Luke Cranston who was on the move, using the top side of the race track to move around Werner and Blurton to take over third and start pressuring Hathaway for the number 2 spot.  click here for more

Luke Cranston once again showed his dominance at the Belleville High Banks in Belleville, Kansas, as he captured The United Rebel Sprint Series 305 Nationals Crown taking home a $2,000 pay check against a stellar field Saturday night. 

Dodge City’s Keefe Hemel and rookie Jed Werner brought the field to the green flag with Hemel’s car stumbling on the start, allowing 3rd position starter Ray Seemann to jump out to an early lead with Werner 2nd and sixth starter Cranston already to 3rd, Zach Blurton in 4th and Brian Herbert in 5th after lap 1. 

On lap 2, Blurton would make a bold move on the bottom in turn 2 to overtake both Cranston and Werner with Cranston making a pass around Werner on the front straight to move into the show position.

Bubak wins at the Bullring

La CROSSE -- Trying to tame the quarter-mile "Bullring" known as Rush County Speedway can be a daunting task, leaving some drivers shaking at the knees.

Jake Bubak isn't one of those drivers, though. Instead, the young driver from Colorado grabs the bull by the horns and proceeds to do what he does best at the track -- drive a sprint car.

That's exactly what Bubak did Friday night at the Bullring Nationals in La Crosse, and it led to his sixth United Rebel Sprint Series feature win this season.

"You just have to be really aggressive," Bubak said. "It just fits my driving style, I guess."

Bubak didn't shine right away -- well, at least until the first lap was finished.

He started 10th in the 30-lap feature and was seventh after the first circuit.

SCHEDULE ALERT !!! Due to circumstances beyond my control I am forced to cancel the August 15th, 16th and 17th races in McCook and Oberlin. This is the hardest thing to have to do but I cannot take the chance of putting you guys in the same position I find myself in with checks that won't clear. Sorry for any inconvenience and I hope you all understand my situation and how hard this was to do...Rick
